AHPA’s 40 Herbs We Love – No.2: Pomegranate (with love from Verdure Sciences)
February 28, 2022
AHPA's 40th anniversary celebrations continue with our showcase of the second of many beloved herbs at the heart of our robust industry and vibrant community.
No. 2: Pomegranate (Punica granatum)
The health benefits of pomegranate have long been associated with the high content of antioxidant polyphenols, in particular ellagitannins such as punicalagins and their gut-derived metabolites, urolithins.
Antioxidants don't just benefit one part of the body or one system; research supports the multi-prong benefits of ellagitannins. Pomegranate has been shown to promote a wide variety of tangible antioxidative health benefits from healthy aging to gut and digestive support, beauty from within, cardiovascular and metabolic health, oral health, and women's nutrition.
Consumer demand for adaptive, multi-prong offerings backed by traceable, transparent, and sustainable solutions has soared. Put transparency to the test with Verdure Sciences' patented, proprietary, and proven pomegranate: Pomella® extract. Celebrate 25 years with your partner in plant-based ingredient solutions!
